Welcome to Birch Class


On the Move!

We had a fantastic and very busy half term before Christmas. We performed our superb Nativity and worked hard to prepare for our school fayre. Have a look at the pictures of some of us dressing up in the photo booth at the fayre, below.


This half term, all of our learning will be based around travel and transport. In English, we will be writing poems based on 'The Train Ride', using repeated phrases. We will also be reading the book 'The Naughty Bus.' As part of this, we will be writing our own adventures for the naughty bus. In D&T, we will be designing and making our own moving vehicles and in History we will be learning about transport from the past.


We will continue our walks around Greenhills nature area to see how the environment changes throughout Winter and into Spring.


Keep looking back at our page to see photos of all of the exciting activities we will be doing.

Christmas Fayre

Sherwood Forest

We went to visit Sherwood Forest. We learnt about animal habitats and then we made our own habitat for a soft toy. Then we had to think about what a badger would like for breakfast and find the items in the woodland. After our picnic lunch (teddies included) we walked through the forest to see Major Oak, Robin Hood's tree.

Making Biscuit Bears

We have visited the Greenhills Nature Area in Underwood. We identified leaves. We will be visiting again in Autumn to see how the area changes throughout the seasons.
